Making Ends Meet

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album Whatcha Gonna Do with a Cowboy (1992).

He left for work and he never came back
Now Mary has to face the fact
That it's up to her to start a new life
With two kids and just one job
It's gonna' take all the strength she's got
Well, it's a hard row but she knows
Somehow she'll survive

Making ends meet, holding her own
Not afraid of a hard days work
To give her family a home
Ain't nothing gonna break her stride
There's too much love and pride
Standing on her own two feet
Making ends meet

Bobby just a regular Joe
His daddy's farm is all he knows
With calloused hands he works the fields each day
The banker says the loans come due
And Bobby knows there's a lot to lose
Well, it ain't fair and it's a lot to bare
But you won't here him complain

Making ends meet, holding his own
Not afraid of a hard days work
To give his family a home
Ain't nothing gonna break his stride
There's too much love and pride
Standing on his own two feet
Making ends meet

When hard times come and test the faith
Of folks like you and I
God bless the ones who stand up tall
And don't give up the fight

Making ends meet, holding their own
Not afraid of a hard days work
To give the family a home
There ain't nothing gonna break their stride
There's too much love and pride
Standing on their own two feet
Making ends meet
Standing on their own two feet
Making ends meet
